American Muslims for Palestine

The Amer­i­can Mus­lims for Pales­tine (AMP) is a Pales­tin­ian advo­ca­cy group with strong ties to both the US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and to the Hamas sup­port infra­struc­ture in the US. A report by the Anti-Defama­tion League describes the AMP as “the lead­ing orga­ni­za­tion pro­vid­ing “anti-Zion­ist” train­ing and edu­ca­tion to stu­dents and Mus­lim com­mu­ni­ty orga­ni­za­tions in the coun­try. The AMP board is chaired by Dr. Hatem Baz­ian who, in a video from an April 2004 anti­war-ral­ly, is seen call­ing for an “Intifa­da” in the US. Dr. Baz­ian lat­er claimed that his remarks on a US Intifa­da were misunderstood.
